Hitting The Big Time!
Once he got going, Chum Stine hit the ground running - and hasn't
stopped once! Chum's story is a perfect example of the power of
His first project was a major motion picture — America's Sweethearts —
written and produced by Billy Crystal. The film starred Julia Roberts,
John Cusack, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Billy Crystal, Hank Azaria, and
Christopher Walken, among others.

Chum's career keeps growing, with no signs of slowing down!

"Be willing to do your best, and attend classes faithfully," Stanulis

From Cop to Character
Graduate Steven Stanulis took advantage of his apprenticeship to
facilitate a mid-life career change. Formerly a decorated NYPD officer,
Savage had to find a new line of work after being injured in the line of
Stanulis chose apprenticeship training to make it happen, and he's glad
he did. "Anyone wanting to break into this business at any level will find
this program instrumental," Steve reports.
Like everyone in the business, he started at the bottom. But he showed
up on time, worked hard, did what he was asked, and just generally kept a
positive attititude. Eventually it paid off — in spades.
In Steve's case
as in many, he got his break by being in the right
place at the right time. And though he started in production, he ended up
with acting roles. First, he scored a bit part in a soap opera, The
Guiding Light. That led to parts in Rolling, The Sopranos, The
Replacements, The Manchurian Candidate, and more.
Currently Steve is currently developing a new show for HBO called
"Savage Men," and he still credits apprenticeship training with getting
his foot in the door. "For anyone trying to break into this business, I
recommend this program whole-heartedly!" he enthuses.
